I've always thought the lack of HD golf in the fall was due to a lack of HD camera and production trailers in the fall. Considering all the NFL and college football now being produced in HD, I just figured Golf Channel couldn't find the equipment for a 4 day golf tournament, especially since major network isn't going to carry the weekend rounds.jimborst said:Just a note on how this channel works with golf. If the tounament is not on a major network over the weekend (like last weeks) there are no hd cameras on the course. If CBS or NBC have the weekend then you get the whole tournament in HD. NBC usually has some SD cameras mixed in but CBS seems to use all HD cameras.
Just my observations.
Yup VS is inferior. That's why I downgraded to AT 200 too many offbeat sports in AT 250 for me.WebTraveler said:Watching the Oregon State - Utah game last Thursday on Versus standard definition was painful. You'd think that such a self-proclaimed innovator (Comcast) would make sure their own network was broadcasting in HD, but it wasn't. Instead we had a golf rerun in HD on the shared Golf channel.
Add in that the announcers were biased and generally lacked an understanding of the game of football and it was an awful broadcast. To think OSU has three more games on Versus this season is even more disappointing.
Bottom line is that Versus is an inferior, second-rate channel
Versus actually claims to produce ALL their NHL coverage in HD.homeskillet said:Versus shares an HD channel with the Golf Channel. A lot of the NCAA games are only produced in SD however. They do produce most of their NHL games in HD though.
You can find it on Dish Network channel 398.
